You know you're a Pirate when...
Thursday, February 1, 2018
It’s no secret that Pirate Nation breeds a culture entirely of it’s own — one of early mornings at the Student Pirate Club lot dressed in purple, late nights at Sup Dogs and forcing yourself to go to Joyner library. They say there’s no place like home, but there’s really no place like Greenville, North Carolina.
And if you are a Pirate, you know there are certain things that make us who we are. The “argh” tattoo on my ankle and my dog named Ficklen make it impossible for me to hide my Pirate pride, and I’ve sat down with fellow Pirates, both new and old, and asked them what they think makes Pirate Nation so incomparable to others.
